Elegant Poinsettias

Hello and Happy Friday! Due to lake effect snow I had the day off from work! Yeah! I actually made the pink card the other night. Yesterday I colored this red poinsettia, by candlelight! We lost power in the morning. It was before I had to get ready for work. I usually watch something I've recorded on TV and look around the blogs. Our power went off so I decided to color! This is my result! It was a nice surprise when power returned! I decided to mount it on the same type of card I had made the other night.
So there you have it-two elegant poinsettias! Image is from the Poinsettia and Boxwood set by Flourishes. I stamped the image twice and colored some of the leaves green on the extra one and attached them underneath with glue dots.

Lake effect snow...goodness I haven't had to deal with that in years. I have to admit I miss the snow this time of year. Now we get power outages because of tornado warnings!Ugh!
I absolutely love how you colored your poinsettas. Gorg----EOUS! They look so beautiful against the embossed background.
Stay Warm Cheryl!
Hugs,
Pam

These cards are just beautiful! I love the snow falling on your pictures, so perfect for these cards. You are a very resourceful stamper...you didn't let a little thing like no lights stop you from creating!

Love your beautiful cards!! Your colouring is fabulous. Have you ever done a tutorial on your colouring methods? I guessing that takes a lot of time but I would be SO interested in that!! How do you colour with out power? Here's hoping that you have a Coleman lantern or something like it. If you did this by candle light, that's even more stunning!!
